The Temple Morning Desktop

This desktop may not look like much, but that’s precisely why it’s so great. It is actually customised, but just in the right ways, and in the ways that work best for shadownight, who submitted it to our desktop showcase. Here’s how it works.


The Hazy Desktop

Smog is usually the opposite of picturesque, but joergermeister manages to take this hazy cityscape and turn it into a remarkable desktop. If you like the look, here’s what you need to get to make it your own.


The Arch Nebula Desktop

The new year is a good time to feature one of our favourite desktop creators, dobbie03. Here he’s running Arch Linux, and while it might look like not much is going on, let’s take a look at what it’s like when he’s working, and how he set it all up.


The Winter Cottage Desktop

Reader Alec used a little Übersicht magic to make his mac a little more welcoming when he sits down to work, and informative when he gets up to leave it. Here’s how he set everything up.


The Martian Desktop

Flickr user Ankush is enamoured with The Martian, and we can’t really blame him. He didn’t mention whether he was inspired by the book or the film to make this desktop, but either way, we love it. Here’s how to set it up.


Most Popular Featured Desktops And Home Screens Of 2015

Every week, we feature customised desktops and home screens submitted by readers that show off beautiful wallpapers and great customisation and UI tweaks. Sometimes they’re fun, sometimes they’re functional, and sometimes they’re both, but 2015 was a great year for all of them. Here’s a look at your favourite ones.


The Pyramids In The Sky Desktop

The creator of this desktop says they have never played Destiny, but this concept art from the game still makes a beautiful wallpaper. Combined with a widget for what’s currently playing, room to work, and a visualizer in the center, and you have a great package that rocks out when you do.


The Umbral Desktop

Zorgodon‘s Windows 10 desktop is super clean and minimal, but still has just enough information to be useful whether he has nothing open, or just a few windows open. Here’s how he set it up.


The Empty Desktop

Aside from the time, battery level and music in the lower left corner, you might think this is just a wallpaper. But it’s not — it’s Dan C‘s desktop, and he likes it empty. Every time he sits down it’s a glorious fresh start. Here’s how he made it.


The Mars Approach Desktop

This Arch Linux desktop features a beautiful photo of Mars floating in the dark, but that’s not all that’s interesting about it — transparent terminal windows and resource indicators round out what’s actually a very productive setup. Here’s how to make it your own.
